Orange Obsession

L-R: MAC Brown Script, Nars Taj Mahal, Stila Valentina

I have been loving all things orange! It has a liveliness to it and brightens up your ensemble - be it makeup, fashion or accessories. Today I am going to talk about my favorite oranges(!) in my makeup.

Nars blush Taj Mahal: This is straight up orange; it is such a gorgeous shade! Don’t be scared by the vibrancy of it. Use it lightly and it gives a very pretty sheen [I used it for my wedding!]. Goes on pretty smooth as well. If I want my cheeks to be the focus, I’d just use this and keep the rest of my makeup pretty simple.

Stila color balm stick in Valentina: Orange statement lips are in vogue for quite some time. I finally found a shade that works for my skin tone. It is opaque, non-drying and goes on pretty smooth.

Essie Geranium: Is it red?! Is it orange?! Its such a fun pop of color for spring and summer!

Mac Brown Script: This is an orangey-brown shade. I typically use it in my crease to give it some definition. I’d also smudge it on my lower lash line for a smoked out effect or to open up my eyes (not literally).


  1. I love the Nars Orange blush ! Can't wait to get my hands on it. Moving away from pinks scares me when it comes to blushes, but this one looks so tempting!

  2. Yes it does look intimidating. But try it lightly first and I promise it will not look orange on you, Bhaw :)
